Best Answer

Port is a fortified wine, which means it is more alcoholic and therefore sweeter than regular wine. Tawny ports have their grapes aged in wooden barrels. The word tawny on a label indicates age, 10, 20, 30, or 40 years old. Tawny ports can be sweet or medium dry. A dry port wine will not be tawny, but less sweeter.
